Rockstar hiring to bring "latest titles" to PC

Since-removed job posting at Rockstar Leeds suggests company's newest games could come to PC.

786 Comments

Rockstar Leeds recently posted (and has since removed) a job listing for a programmer who would assist in bringing the company's "latest titles" to PC.

No Caption Provided

"Rockstar Leeds are currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform," reads a line from the job ad as captured by Rockstar Watch.

"Working together with the other Rockstar studios, you will be responsible for maintaining the studio’s uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible."

The requisition also mentions "working with skilled developers on next generation gamers," suggesting Rockstar will continue to release games on PC in the future.

A Rockstar Games representative was not immediately available to comment.

Some of Rockstar Games' "latest titles" currently unavailable or unannounced for PC include 2010's Red Dead Redemption and this September's Grand Theft Auto V. The company has said a PC version of GTAV is "up for consideration."

Rockstar Games released the first official gameplay trailer for GTAV today. For more, check out GameSpot's editor analysis of the footage.

Why are pc gamers always excited about playing 3 year old leftovers? I'm assuming you have a lot of money since your dropping 3k on a pc, so why not just buy a console instead of waiting years? lol makes no sense.

@GONtheSKYLORD Well technically, Graphics-wise we've got quite an advantage. The ability to play at crazy-high resolutions never gives me enough reason to look back and resort to play on a console. On PC we get tons of choices on how we play, we either use mouse and keyboard, a controller, or flight sticks/steering wheels. And on top of that we get to play at more fluid frames than consoles. That alone is a clear advantage. However none of that even comes close to the real definition of PC gaming. The ability to tinker a game's core files, putting it in a position where we could perform dissections, alterations, enhancements and modifications. It is immensely satisfying having to see what a game's potential could lead to. Hours and hours of gameplay are added without even paying anything, just because of the miraculous environment a game is being played on.

@baszzer @GONtheSKYLORD It seems no one actually read my post. I never said abandon pc, so talking about how it's better makes no sense. I was saying why not get a console to experience the great games that you can't play on pc? A few hundred more bucks won't hurt you after you just dropped a few thousand on a gaming rig.

@GONtheSKYLORD @baszzer A few thousands? LOL, don't state such bullshit. You can build a good gaming PC which much less than 1k.....for some there is no point to spend a few hundred bucks on top for a console they barely used, for some there is no point to play games with a controller......
Not everything in life is a question of money....

@GONtheSKYLORD What the HELL are you talking about "always excited about 3 year old leftovers"?? Most games come out around the same time, occasionally games are brought out later, like in this case. And so what? If they're good games, why are they "leftovers"?? Just because you might plunk down 60 Dollars on a game on day one doesn't make the game any better. And who knows they might improve later releases, you don't know, cause you don't even consider it. Heck, you don't even know what a good PC costs.

"so why not just buy a console"

No lag, graphics, controls, customization, mods, wider range of games, lower priced games, online games up and running still after consoles drop out their online support.. speaks about why PC wins.

@quakke A) No. All games have lag and will always have lag. It's a physical impossibility of networking to completely eliminate lag. Whether it's major or not is a different question, but, take BF3 for instance. Not only does the game have terrible lag, it also has the worst detection ever, which contributes to the lag. It's quite literally as bad as playing Rogue Spear on 56k in the mid 90s sometimes.

B) Controls. The only place where PC is better for controls is in strategy games and MMO/Sim games, which don't actually exist on console (for the most part). Console ports to PC have noticeably bad control mappings and that's not PC's fault, obviously, but it still happens.

C) Prices really aren't lower until months and years after release.

@Grenadeh @quakke B) Controls: This depends greatly on your personal taste. ;)

c) Prices: This is just wrong. Most PC games are really cheap within weeks and months after release. You can pick most of them for half price about 2 or 3 months after release....

@Grenadeh PC games nowadays almost always go for $50 at release, compared to the $60 for consoles. Nevermind the sales for digital copies.

@GONtheSKYLORD @baszzer I've always thought of all the games we've missed notably the Halo franchise, Uncharted, Gears of War and of course, all of Quantic Dreams' games. However, I could still find enough reason to stick to PC. I've just been used to it since I was a kid. Anyways, If given the chance I'll probably grab a PS4 considering the super win it had against Microsoft.

@Grenadeh @Tidal_Abyss @LordCrash88 There is a reason. I don't like it. It's a personal reason but it's perfectly legit. Playing a 3rd person action game with mouse+keyboard means much more fun and enjoyment to me than playing it with a controller. ;)

@Grenadeh @LordCrash88 Of course you are welcome to your opinions, and to use what you like, but if you read my statement where I simply gave my opinion and didn't bash (not my style), both I and LordCrash88 both said how we hate using them, not everyone likes the same things. Some people are content using both, and more power to them, but not everyone enjoys that. Gaming is to relax and enjoy yourself at root, so I use what I enjoy, and you do the same. That's reason enough.

@Tidal_Abyss @LordCrash88 As a master race member, I don't use MKB for anything that isn't Sim, strategy, or shooter . That would be retarded. I've played thanks like Viking with MKB, it's just not right.

It controls a wee bit more precisely, as far as third person games go, but outside of those three genres, there's no reason to not use a controller on PC.

@LordCrash88 You just described me- except I'd alter it just slightly and say "I hate controllers for anything". I do, I detest those things. No offense if someone wants to use them, makes no difference to me, but not everyone likes or will use them.

Before someone asks, yes, I've tried them before, but they just felt so foreign in my hands, I felt like my hands were tied, so limited in what I could do, they were slower and all around annoying, honestly I didn't feel like I was gaming- but if you've put in over 20years with a mouse and keyboard, you're going to profoundly feel the differences. I do use wheels for racing games though, and cruising the market for a joystick for flight sims.

What do you think a console basically is?.. it's the PC's retarded little cousin that can't do much. Everyone has a retarded little cousin.

@GSGuy321 @s2i2p2i2o @baszzer Haha, yeah sure he is allowed to. I just don't get it. "I am proud because I only play games on one platform and therefore miss out on some great titles that only can be played on consoles". Not really something to be proud of imo.

I only play PC as well, but I really don't see that as something to be proud of. But hey, if that's how he feels then good for him...I guess.

@GSGuy321 @s2i2p2i2o @baszzer Whoa.. Thank you for the support but no need calling names.. PC and consoles should live mutually. Consoles are our brothers wherein they get what sometimes we don't get and vice versa. Let's just learn to understand. Anyway, I totally appreciate your defense.

Waste of time, just keep Rockstar games on true 'gaming' platforms (consoles) where they make money. PCs are for emails, spreadsheets, pirating and whinging about anything and everything.

If they port RDR and GTA V to pc I would have to say good for them, because I am never buying another xbox.I bought a 360 a few years ago because I was hook on the GTA series and wanted to play GTA IV before it was released for the PC.Needless to say the 360 red ringed just after the warranty ran out and it is now a little more than an ornamented door stop. But my very expensive GTA IV discs are still around.Never again will I fall into that trap.I am a pc gamer to the core and I don’t have to wait or speculate about whether Saint Row IV will be available for my pc.

A bit too much speculation with the Red Dead Redemption... its most likely just GTA V.. but a man can hope.

well I am a bit disappointed by rockstar they are insulting pc and humiliating pc gamers because gta got its rep from pc cmon don't u remember its just like what happened to gears of war give the m one for pc and let them run after the rest that will be only on xbox too damn evil though we pc gamers are the most respectful and tech offering I remember I read once that console gamers were not going to risk at all and buy gears of war 1 until they saw it and played it on pc and now we are to be banned from getting the remainder of the series f**k those who do not appreciate pc as a powerful platform and rockstar look at ubisoft and Capcom then learn the lesson before its too late.i mean a 2010 game s**t ive got nothing to say anymore.

Sorry if I sound rude but it's true and you can take this as my own opinion . Rockstar = Money whores . No respect for them , frankly I don't give a damn about their games , why beg for something when they don't our money . However I hope RDR comes to PC (GTA 5 will be on PC , no doubt) , I'm saying this because a lot of PC gamers want to play those games on their platform .

@ar6ra6sh9 @Cloud_imperium He meant that they plan their PC releases strategically. Their first consideration when creating games is "how can we make most money with it?" instead of "how can we make the best game AND making it available to as many fans as possible?"
So Rockstar apparently think that PC fans are not worth the effort in the first place and when they decide to do a port it's month after the console version in order to try to get some money from console owners a second time.
That's clever business, no question, but it's still aweful from a gamer point of view. They lost their spirit = money whores....
